Pilates

Pilates emphasizes balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient and graceful movement. The core muscles are the deep internal muscles of the abdomen and back. When the core muscles are strong and doing their job, as they are trained to do in Pilates, they work in tandem with the more superficial muscles of the trunk to support the spine and movement. This is one of the ways Pilates helps people overcome back pain.

Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. Pilates is particularly good for people with poor mobility and back pain.

High Intensity Circuits

Circuits targets aerobic fitness and muscular endurance at the same time. Participants go through a series of exercises often referred to as stations for either a set time or number or reps, with little or no rest between. Some circuits involve exercise equipment while others may use bodyweight exercises or a combination of both.

Table Tennis

As you may know, the table tennis classes are growing and people are really enjoying playing and socialising as a result. We have a number of sessions now (see below). We encourage all to come and play, no matter what level. The main factor is enjoyment. Table tennis has been shown to improve coordination and motor skills. Research has shown that table tennis can keep Alzheimer’s at bay and improve one’s quality of life. Who would have known!

Thursdays we hold a drop in session between 10am and 1pm for beginners and intermediate players. The idea is that it is a relaxed and fluid session where you will get a chance to play against a variety of other players. The sessions are really popular but we only have 3 tables and we cannot accommodate more than 10 players at any given time. Even then it is a bit of a push. There are two other sessions: one for advanced players on Wednesdays at 11 am until 1 pm and one for intermediate and advanced players on Fridays 10.30am to 12.30pm. Hopefully we can then give everyone some quality playtime and give all a chance to practice new skills.

You can also play outside of those hours by renting a table when the studio is not otherwise busy with another class. Please consult the timetable to find a slot and ring us on 01422 846022 to book your table.  The tables can be hired at a cost of £12 ph. Included in that price is the provision of bats and balls.

HIIT

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has been shown to be a very effective way to improve fitness and encourage weight loss in a very short space of time. It consists of various exercise stations where you will perform the exercise in short high energy bursts with a much slower performance in between bursts. There is HIIT and HIIT for beginners which is self explanatory.
